Book review: Stranded, by Melinda Braun

Braun, Melinda. Stranded. Simon Pulse, 2016. 288p. $10.99.  ISBN: 978-1481438209. Gr. 9+. P7 Q7

Seventeen-year-old  Emma goes on a hiking trip along with six other people.  While on the hike, a storm hits where the hikers are camped out for the night, killing two of the teens and the guide.  Now Emma and the last three hikers have to survive in the forest and find their way back to safety.

Verdict: I liked this book because it was so realistic; the characters had dimension and were believable.  It was refreshing to read a “teen” book that didn’t demean the adventure by adding romance.
